Bloody boring little sxxt
The thing is that Marquez is a great qualifier and we have seen his ability to overtake. There's no reason to think, as far as I have seen, that if Marquez were to start lower down the grid with the same pace he enjoys from race to race, that he'd likely be like Rossi and have many wins despite the lack of as many poles. Marquez is an absolute alien!

When I found this site and browsed a bit, I realised that most seem to prefer anonymity through the use of pseudonyms. Is it an overreaction or just based on genuine potential threats from a discussion group environment where the integrity of all subscribers at a particular moment can't be trusted. That's a matter of personal POV, I guess. I decided to play it safe and follow the existing norm.

Has started from the back of the grid in moto 2 , and was probably going to win from the back of the field when DQed for tangling with a much slower Rossi attempting to overtake him in the wet last year.

Consider this, if championship points were awarded based on a riders star sign being Aquarius and their best friends surname being Salucci, I'd say Valentino Rossi would've wiped the floor with Marquez...

He wouldn’t even be winning that. I’m pretty confident that Rins would be ahead of Rossi for opponents overtaken.

'Character' you say ...
YES...The little shit made Rossi and other riders wipe the floor with his dangerous riding style....
Don't say it's aggressive riding, he's downright bloody dangerous but gets away with it every time ffs .
On a good note the little Shit got beat today...

If someone collected all the sour grapes over Rossi's losses presented on this forum over the years - they could make enough vinegar to float a battleship.
